0 Post a comment Friday, 17 May 2019 - Community News by The Post @twitter.com/ThePostSeries [email protected] THERE will be no change to the Camelford parish boundary. The decision was made at the last full meeting of Camelford Town Council, where they unanimously decided to make no changes to the parish boundary.Councillors also agreed on 22 formal council meetings for the year, with two taking place each month. Town clerk, Esther Grieg, reported that there is ‘nothing that benefits’ the area to make any changes, which would include absorbing Advent or Davidstow parishes. Deputy mayor, Rob Rotchell, said of the two parishes: “For Davidstow, the number one agenda item is the cheese factory. If they requested a change, I wouldn’t want us to be distracted by stuff going on at the cheese factory. I would want us to say no to any approach from any other parish to change the structure.” The council came to the decision for the parish boundary … [Read more...] about No calls for parish boundary change

Details are typically vague at the moment – an element of surprise is often crucial for a well-executed stunt. So far, the XR protesters have favoured obstruction of roads, sit-ins, and supergluing themselves … [Read more...] about What do we know about the planned climate change protest at Heathrow?
Last general election I founded Renew, by standing as an independent candidate in Battersea. My hope for the new party was that moderate MPs would split into a new centre party and oppose Brexit. In three weeks of campaigning I beat the Greens and achieved and won 1,234 votes – a higher vote count than the Lib Dems managed in a third of London seats. I believed that a break-up of our two paralysed parties of government can overcome our utterly dysfunctional politics: ERG extremists have delivered a Brexit crisis so grave that some of our biggest manufacturers are pulling out. Anti-semitism has made greater in-roads into the state than in any developed country since the holocaust. Now courageous MPs have split from the big two parties to form Change UK – and Renew has joined them. What seemed like a forlorn hope for some is now gaining traction with some of the biggest political figures in the land. Before the election I was a foreign office anti-terrorist officer. … [Read more...] about I founded Renew to catalyse Change UK. Now Tony Blair can catapult us to power
